My new Milkshake

I have a new friend.
His name is Andy...but I call him Milkshake. Cuz he was singing "my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard".
He's a first year nursing student and is in my clinicals, we have fun times at school.
I ran into him this weekend at an Adele concert, we had fun. His partner bought me a drink, we danced and laughed a ton. Why are gay guys so much fun? Every girl needs a few friends like Milkshake!

Goals for 2009 Update

A look back on my goals for 2009...I have made a "little progress" on them, but its progress none the less.

1. Lose 20+ pounds (ugh making no progress here!)
2. Graduate from Nursing School (May is just around the corner)3. Move out of my parents
4. Make a dent in my debt
5. Read 50 books (5 down 45 to go) I highly recommend Edgar Sawtelle or The Alchemist
6. Take a trip out of the state
7. Get a job in the nursing field (Still looking, but have an interview on 3/26!)
8. Ride my bike 500 miles (Not warm enough yet)
9. Walk 1000 miles (daily walking doesn't count, i mean on a treadmill, bike path, etc., making myself go for a walk I mean). (990 miles to go!)
10. Make 365 handmade cards (LOL, slacker! I have made 2, 363 to go!)
11. Scrap 52 pages
12. See 10 concerts (1 down, 9 to go). (I saw Adele on 3/20, it was awesome, only 8 more to go!)
13. Publish 100 blogs for the year ( haven't kept track....but I think I am at 20 or so)
14. Learn 30 new recipes (If anyone has any good ones, send them my way!)

Its just a start and some of these goals are way easier than the others. I'll try to keep these updated when changes happen.

So progress odf any kind is good...I can't wait for some warmer weather and I can really get cracking on bike riding and walking...and hopefully weight loss. ;)

I am have been feeling very strange lately. Maybe even borderline depressed and it sucks. I need to get out of this funk that I am in. I want to sleep all of the time and have no real desire to do anything but zone off. I am thinking it is partly due to the weather. I want to get outside and get some fresh air, take a walk or ride my bike. But in the past few weeks, it has been rainy, super cold or snowing...which makes it nearly impractical to do. I could suck it up and bundle up...but I am lazy and I really don't like being cold. I feel like such a lump. I have gained 5 or 6 pounds and am not finding the motivation that i need to get my butt in gear and try WW again. UGH...I need to get out of this FUNK!!!
Hopefully some warm weather will brighten my mood.
